Owner description: Andrew Low commissioned New York architect John Norris to design and construct his house in 1848. Norris came to Savannah to design the Custom House on Bay Street and remained in Savannah to build many desirable residences with the latest in technology and luxury. The Italianate exterior features intricate cast iron railings and side balconies contrasting with the smooth stuccoed brick walls. The well proportioned rooms are decorated with elaborate plaster cornices and carved woodwork. The delicate balance of exterior restraint and opulent interior resulted in an elegant villa for the family.

“SAME AS ANY OTHER OLD HISTORICAL HOUSE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

After touring the Juliette Low House, we stopped to see the Andrew Low House. Other than some of the history presented on the tour, the house itself was basically the same as the previous house. From my understanding, most of the furniture was reproductions from the era and not the original furniture which was somewhat disappointing. If your into history and want to know more about the historical facts of the Low family, then by all means visit the house, otherwise you can pass on this.

“A "bridge" in a House?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

This home was very lovely. It seemed to have the most functional floor plan of the homes we toured. Upstairs there is a "bridge" that connected one side of the upstairs to the other. It was a unique and interesting feature.

“A wonderful tour”

Be sure to add a tour of the Andrew Low House to your Savannah visit. The docent was very interesting and the house itself is beautiful.
